About the Provider


My name is Amanda Monahan and I am the owner of Where Imagination Grows Daycare. I am a mommy of a 2 year old little boy and love children! At Where Imagination Grows Daycare, we take pride in caring for your children the way you would while teaching them all of the fundamentals. Our program currently provides each child in care with Breakfast, Lunch and (2) Snacks, on a daily basis. Where Imagination Grows Daycare knows the challenges all parents may encounter when leaving their most prized possessions with strangers and try to make it a little easier by offering Parent Connect. With Parent Connect each parent can stay updated with their child's daily progress via your mobile phone. Parents will also be able to download our cameras on their mobile to see their little ones whenever they would like. We offer pick up and drop off services for those families who may be unable to commute or for the school age children who need to stay at program after school. W.I.G.D. is your child's home away from home!

Additional Information:

Drop off and Pick Up is offered.
